I’m a terrible Londoner who should know how unpredictable the weather can be around these parts. When I left work today it was snowing; I had no gloves, stupid shoes on and no umbrella! I had to splash out £18 for an umbrella from Accessorize; way more than I’d normally spend but desperate times…

I consoled myself with the fact that the umbrella would look great with the dream hallway I’ve been picturing for the last few days. I’ve seen some items that would go perfectly together to create a glamorous yet quirky entry way to any home. I especially love the moustache key holder by suddenly, it’s real. My husband said I could buy it if he was allowed to grow a handlebar moustache to match. Fair trade I think!



  1. Gloss black mustache key hook – $45 (delivery to UK available)
  2. Baroque Console Table – £110
  3. Owl Umbrella Stand – $140
  4. Clear umbrella – £18 (available in store only)

Wellies for Winter

Given the amount of snow in London over the last week, I thought it’d be a good idea to hunt out some suitable snow boots; without sacrificing on style of course! I’ve seen a lot of people sporting wellington boots for the treacherous commute to and from work. Here are my top four choices of wellies to see you through not only winter but also the inevitable wet British springtime.


Wellies for Winter

  1. Crocs Georgie Boots (various colours) – £33.79
  2. Wedge Heel Wellington Boots – £14.99
  3. Pink Heart Wellies (with matching bag) – £24.99
  4. Hunter Festival Lace Wellington Boots (various colous) – £49.99
